Bhil refers to an ancient Indian style of painting.—Painting like most Indian art reflects the religious passion of the people, their joys and aspirations. It is also a documentation of the life and times, of kings and courts, nature, plants and animals. It is a celebration of colour, of festivals and all that is beautiful. India’s heritage of painting (e.g., the Bhil style) is a record of happy times and happy people who expressed their hopes and faith through their works of art.
